Members of learning communities that are 'non-residential', receive the great benefits of belonging to a Learning Community but the community currently doesn't have a block of rooms inside a residence hall available to students to live in. A non-residential Learning Community may become a residential Learning Community in the future.

Community Highlights:

  • Open to all undergraduate students
  • Work with History Department faculty
  • Connect with professionals to develop career networks
  • Experience a supportive environment for academic growth
  • Participate in social activities, field trips, and service projects

Engaging Experiences:

  • Travel on field trips to local and regional sites of historical interest
  • Participate in oral history projects with community members (RESC-2000)
  • Enjoy activities such as trivia night, film screenings, and historical role-playing events
  • Interact with scholars and professionals who work in history-related fields

About The Community

The History Village is designed to provide students with opportunities to connect with fellow students, History Department faculty and community members in the surrounding area. Our field trips, service projects and social activities are both fun and intellectually rewarding. Along the way, History Village community members will gain a greater awareness of the diverse careers in the many fields that employ historians.

New history majors are required to enroll in HIST-1910. Non-history majors are welcome but not required.
